Three culinary gurus travel the world to save failing eateries in spectacular settings on Restaurants on the Edge.
Dennis Prescott, a former singer, food stylist, and passionate chef, teamed up with award-winning interior designer Karin Bohn and expert restaurateur Nick Liberato (who participated in Spike TV’s blockbuster show Bar Rescue for three seasons) to give failed restaurants a second chance at success.
The three friends spent 2019 backpacking across Europe, Asia, and the Americas, saving eateries in spectacular but little-known locations.
In each episode, the hosts visit the featured establishment and immerse themselves in the local culture and environment to fully see the business’s potential. Through the power of television, even the most run-down eateries may be revitalized and made lucrative again.
Up to 13 episodes have reportedly been planned, with potential new settings in Finland, Arizona, Slovenia, and Hawaii.
Initially, production occurred in Malta, Hong Kong, Canada, Costa Rica, Austria, and St. Lucia for Restaurants on the Edge. We have located all the sets used in the series production through our investigation.
Tobermory, Canada’s Coconut Joe’s Harbour Bar and Restaurant
The patio at Coconut Joe’s, a tiki-themed restaurant, offers breathtaking views of the setting sun over the calm waters of Georgian Bay.
Tobermory, a small port town near the tip of Ontario’s Bruce Peninsula, is home to excellent freshwater SCUBA diving.
Tobermory is the starting point for tours to more than 25 shipwrecks, Flowerpot Island, and the ferry to Manitoulin Island in Lake Huron.
Marsaxlokk, Haber 16, Malta
Famous Maltese goalkeeper and restaurant owner Justin Haber looks out over the picturesque fishing boats of Marsaxlokk Bay.
Located just south of Valletta, the hamlet is a must-see for any visitor to Malta.
For his restaurant to make it through the season, Justin needs the advice of an expert.
The Overlook in Costa Rica – Aptos
Playas del Coco is a small beach town in the tropical paradise of Guanacaste, and the Lookout Restaurant adjacent to Las Playas Resort offers a breathtaking view of the bay.
The name of this venue accurately describes its setting: the hotel’s penthouse, with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean.
Restaurants on the Edge’s three-person team helped get things back on track by emphasizing seafood, live oysters, and independent beer.
Pettneu am Arlberg, Austria – Arlberg Boutique Bar Hotel
Miriam and Dave, a married couple, bought the former Edelweiss hotel but were unhappy with the success of the quirky restaurant they opened next door to it.
Skiers and snowboarders visiting the Arlberg massif in Austria will find this Tyrolean community an ideal home base.
Saint Lucia, Sue and Fluffy’s roadside informal eatery
Sue and Fluffy’s roadside casual cafe is in a picture-perfect location near Marigot Bay on the island of St. Lucia in the Caribbean.
There was no consistent clientele or recognizable brand for the restaurant to rely on during lean times.
Hong Kong’s Tai O Banyan Tree
The show was also undergoing a culture shock in Hong Kong as it dove headfirst into the eccentricities of one of the city’s last remaining fishing towns.
Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, the vast Lantau Island features peaceful mountains, a lake, and picturesque towns.
